My second dog was a stray so don't know her parentage, but she has a gsd's head and
a Belgian body and she is great at agility.
They are not all shown together now and have been separate for some years. I have
owned and bred groenendael for 25 years, compete in agility on a mobility scooter
and use a groenendael as an assistance dog. Best breed in the world!!!!
Pat comments: Thank you
for putting me right on the showing aspect.
I own a turveren, and he's the most caring, beautiful dog I've come across. When he
was a puppy, he was the usual rebel pup (ripping up things, making mess etc) But he
was easy to train, and soon understood right from wrong.
He's friendly with other dogs, and strangers.
But he needs quite a lot of attention. Lots of walking, he's quite a fussy dog too.
I would reccomend this breed of dog to people who are looking for a friend, and who
don't mind a lot of exercise. There brilliant dogs!
Oh My Goodness!! I have just seen Malinois! I have, or so I thought, a collie x
alsatian as that was the breed type on her card from the Dogs Home. I got her aged
10 weeks, and everyone has always mistook her for a Belgian. She is identical in
looks and build to Malinos although she only weighs 15kg and is 16 month old! I am
just amazed at the likeness! Wish I could put her picture on here to show you.

"My last dog was a large GSD he was steady but slow, my
cross has the gsd ability with the speed and lightness of a bsd,
and although she is too young to compete(17 months)
she is showing a great potential at training."
"Belgians have a huge sense of humour and can have a "Belgian
moment" which lovers of the breed will understand. They are very
sensitive physically but respond beautifully to intelligent,
reward based training and are very agile, bright and fast so I'd
say they are excellent agility dogs but only for the right owner
who is prepared to understand them."
